MANDARIN ORANGE CAKE WITH PINEAPPLE FROSTING

Butter With a Side of Bread: Mandarin Orange Cake with Pineapple Frosting

This cake has been one of my absolute favorite desserts for years and I’m not even a huge fan of cake, so that’s saying something!   The flavors of the cake and the frosting are so light and refreshing – I promise this cake will be a big hit at your next party!

Mandarin Orange Cake w/Pineapple Frosting

Cake:
1 yellow cake mix
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
11 oz can mandarin oranges (with the juice)

Mix all ingredients together and bake at 350 for 35 minutes.  If you make the cake in a bundt pan (rather than a 9X13), the cook time will be closer to 45 minutes.

Frosting:
8 oz Cool Whip
1 sm. can crushed pineapple (8 oz)
1 sm. pkg vanilla instant pudding

Once the cake is cooled, mix the pineapple and pudding together.  Let set for a few minutes until slightly thickened and then fold in the Cool Whip.  Spread on cake and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
